My six year old daughter and I stayed here for a week in August. We were pleasantly suprised with how lovely it was as we booked last minute and were on a budget and expected something much more basic.
When we arrived it looked just that from the outside, seemingly in the middle of nowhere, but upon entering found a clean, airy and spacious and reception area with helpful staff and a luggage room to leave our cases until our room was ready (mid pm as expected).
Our room was on the top floor (lift access) on the front of the building overlooking the road which was fine as we had a beautiful sea view and couldn't hear any traffic on an evening. The room itself was clean, modern, well equipt (air con, fridge, toaster, microwave, hob, coffee maker, hairdryer, towels, TV, lots of storage space and complimentary toiletries). The safety deposit box cost €15 and €15 returnable deposit for the key.
The pool area was clean with plenty of sunbeds and a decent sized garden area with more beds and a snack bar area with shaded tables. The pool was nice and chilly - ideal in temperatures of 35-42c°!
On exploration we found we were 5 minutes from the nearest shops and restaurants, 10 minutes from the beach, 15 minutes from The Strip and a 25 minute walk or short taxi/train ride from the beautiful Old Town (€5/6). Close enough to access everything we wanted but far enough away to escape any hustle and bustle.
We would recommend Martinique Velha for food and CAKES! (try the pastel de nata) in Santa Eulalia, Senhor Frog's on The Strip and Taberna do Pescador in the Old Town - all lovely food with great service.
One downside - if you need to use the internet for anything its €2 for 10 minutes but it is VERY slow.
All in all though, it was much better than expected and we plan to stay here again on our return.
